Very cool, Scott!  Thanks for posting.  I've often been tempted to order an AJP Maquettes kit, but it's such a pain in the butt to order from them, I just give up.  Fantastic subjects, though.
Cheers,
Bud

i have the ajp maquettes etrich taube. i got it on ebay for $20. i will attempt it oneday. i think mainly the early types are good for this medium, like magnifficent men type stuff,due to the thin wings.
